Experience the prettiest fall foliage in Vermont
During autumn, Vermont is bursting with color—crimson, ginger, gold—over hills and mountains. You can view Vermont’s fall foliage in many different ways.
By car, by bike, by glider?
The most popular way to view many beautiful maple groves, farm lands, and covered bridges, is by car. Drive either (or both!) of the approximately 40 mile loops mentioned in the Sept./Oct. 2007 issue of Yankee Magazine.
Depending on when you time your trip, the colors will be either descending toward the greener valley or brightening the lowlands as the summits turn the dun shades of late autumn. ~ Yankee Magazine
For the two-wheeled leaf-peepers, cycling along the beautiful countryside is the way to go. If you’re traveling by car or bike while viewing the beautiful scenery, you may want to stop at the many antique shops or craft shows in the area.
Adventurous types might consider taking a glider ride to get an aerial perspective of Vermont’s mountains and valleys in autumn—simply spectacular.
Covered bridges abound
You can also take a self-guided Covered Bridge Tour by car or bike to 14 different bridges in Lamoille County. Picnic next to beautiful rivers and streams.
If Vermont is fortunate enough to have an Indian summer, take a dip in one of its many popular swimming holes.
